The skillful users and 3D model creators can also share their designs to the entire OLO community through the social media, making the device capable of social interaction.
The team designed this device not just for 3D printing, but also for easy 3d printing access through internet. It can be accessed through the application, which is designed to be compatible with any smartphone operating system. Phones that are operating on Android, iOS, or Windows are just perfect for this device. This really serves its developer the goal to provide quick and direct access to 3d printing using the mobile devices, especially on its inexpensive and affordable price.
